Are you thinking about buying a Class A motor home? If you are, then you are probably aware that motorized RVs are classified into 3 different classes-A, B, and C and that each Class has different characteristics and unique features. The Class A motor home is the biggest motor home on the market and it is sometimes considered the most luxurious as well. It has the biggest engine as well. It is can be called a motor coach. A diesel pusher is another name for a diesel powered Class A motor home.
The Class A motor home can be between 24 and 40 feet long-but most of them are over 30 feet long. To fit the definition of a Class A, an RV must have some certain features-namely, a cockpit, a living area, a kitchen, a bathroom, and a bedroom. You may be wondering how all of these fit in one RV. But, actually most RVs make quite a good use of the space available to them. With hideaway beds and convertible furniture, you can sleep up to 8 people in some Class A motor home models. Another feature that adds quite a bit of space to some RVs is slide outs. Slide outs are motorized extensions which add up to 3 feet to certain areas of the RV. Some RVs have only one, while others have multiple slide outs. This increases the living space on a Class A motor home considerably. An awning on the outside can also give you the illusion of more outdoor living space.
The features in a Class A are what individualizes it. You can make it as basic as you choose, but you can also add features such as ceramic tile, hardwood floors and cabinetry, and even a hot tub. The furnishings can be simple or designer fabrics or even leather. Entertainment centers range from a simple television and stereo, to a couple of flat screen TVs with satellite and an outdoor sound system. Safety features can include a rear view video camera with audio capabilities, audible back up warning signal, adjustable seats and power mirrors.
